Starflyer 59 – I Win

Purchase [Amazon]

 

Based out ouf Aliso Viejo and having made more than 10 albums and several EP’s to thier name, Starflyer 59 is relatively unknown.  However, this isn’t because of a lack of quality music.  Their latest album My Island, released last year is a prime example of the a solid album from start to finish.  You can read a review of it here at Allmusic.com 





Ulrich Schnauss – Stars & Medusa

Ulrich Schnauss – Stars

This track is a massive wall of sound similar to shoegazing acts like Lush, Slowdive, and Cocteau Twins. Give this track a minute or two to be drawn in and drowned in a beautiful mix of electronic bliss and dreamy vocals.

Ulrich Schnauss – Medusa


Meduse has swelling vocals that ebb and flow to a soothing wall of sound and a climactic wash, that has a little harder hitting action to it compaired to “Stars”

Both tracks can be found on the Goodbye album by Ulrich Schnauss
